Hyannis, Massachusetts Travel Guide
Hyannis is a village on the Cape Cod Peninsula of Massachusetts. It is known for its beautiful beaches and the private Kennedy Compound.
Thousands go to Hyannis every summer to go to the beaches. Water sports are popular with swimming, kayaking, jet skiing, boating, boogie boards, water skiing, whale watching and fishing.
Hyannis’ Kalmus Beach is popular with windsurfers. It has constant breezes and good waves coming in from Nantucket Sound. A large beach, it is divided into two sections, one for windsurfing and the other for swimming. The winds also make this beach a great place for flying kites. Picnic tables and a snack bar make lunch easy and convenient.
Another family friendly beach, Veterans Beach is home to a memorial shrine honoring John F. Kennedy and a Korean War Memorial. The beach is a great place for shelling with treasures of the sea washing up on the shore year round.
The largest beach in the area, Sandy Neck Beach has over 6 miles of pebbly sands plus trails for off-road vehicles. The beach features breathtaking views of Cape Cod Bay and the surrounding coastline.
Hyannis has a friendly laid back, old fashioned vibe reminiscent of slower times. Go for a walk, visit the candy store or get an ice cream. Find a rocking chair and watch the waves. Chill out.
Enjoy a delicious dinner of fresh seafood. Try a local Wine & Wine Jelly Sauce Tasting.
See humpback, finback, or North Atlantic Right whales on the Cape Ann Whale Watch.
